LeaderThe Dear Leader


The People's Republic of Pradovnia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Dear Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 9.761 billion Pradovnians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vaflograd. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Pradovnian economy, worth a remarkable 2,112 trillion Pradloks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 216,462 Pradloks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts, and most ambassadors from Pradovnia retire only a few years after being appointed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pradovnia's national animal is the Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pradovnia is ranked 55,191st in the world and 2,798th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 23.02 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
